“As an adult getting braces for the first time, I was very impressed with Dr. Altherr's practice and he was spot on with the results he promised and delivered. It only took 9 months to get the results I was seeking. I highly recommend his work as well as the staff he employs who were friendly and respectful.”

— Lina P.

“We had such a positive experience going to Dr. Altherr's practice. The staff is very friendly, compassionate and professional. With both my boys being in braces at the same time the office was very accommodating to scheduling appointments to meet our needs. They were quick to 'fit us in' whenever a mishap occurred.”
